Novotel Cardiff Centre

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Felt we got our money's worth. Very pretty hotel with nice sized room. Had to walk to City Center, about 20 minutes. Nothing close to hotel for meals or anything else. Had to pay 10 pounds English for parking. I thought parking was included in hotel cost. Paid 10 pounds English for each of us for great breakfast. Well worth it..

I stayed in this hotel for a week since I was working in Cardiff. I chose this one since it fit my company budget (<$200 daily), and it was a 10 minute walk to Cardiff Central rail station. I requested early check-in at 11 am but no rooms were available. That wasn't a negative since the check-in was clearly at 3 pm. I was offered a secure place to store my luggage until my check-in was ready. They had two iMac computers with free internet access in the lobby. For doing business, I did not like the fact that I had to pay for wi-fi. Also for business, I did not like that the breakfast buffet was a costly 13 pounds per day. I was never disclosed this fee and did not find out until I checked out. After 5 days, that certainly adds up. I would have preferred a free continental breakfast option, especially since time is crucial in the morning and can't afford to spend time eating a large expensive breakfast. The front desk was friendly with check-in, check-out, and calling for taxis. They all had warm smiles. The cleaning service did a good job with room cleaning. Overall, I enjoyed my stay in this modern-decor hotel, but if I could find a hotel with complimentary wi-fi and breakfast, I'd choose that one over the Novotel.
